Yarn Sticks with Annika Stenvall (Beechboro)
August 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Please note that this program is suitable for children aged 8 -12, and is a hands-on crafting workshop. Photographs and videos may be taken of the event.
Enjoy the process of wrapping found sticks in yarn, creating a story as you choose colours that speak to you. We will then link the yarn sticks together to create a hanging weave that tells your colourful story.
